My biggest I never weighed (but was easily a double), so I'll have to go for my second biggest so far, which is 7.5lB.

Mine was a 15 lb to a float fished gudgeon 25 years ago and one I can't seem to beat.

Saying that I got a 30 and a few 20's but that was with a seine net with the YWA many moons ago [:)]

My biggest Pike was way back in 1978 (ish) in a club match on an off shoot of the River Kennet in Reading called The Holly Brook.

It took a small Gudgeon as i was bringing it in on StickFloat with (if my memory is right) 3lb line and proberly a 16 or 18 hook and weighed 19lb 10oz and just to make the day i won the match with a total weight of over 30lb which included Roach, Chub, Gudgeon, Dace and the Pike.

In 1979 i fished the clubs annual Pike match which was a rover and fished on Englefield Lagoon (now a renowned specimen Tench and Bream water) again near Reading.

It was a 5 hour match and it took me nearly an hour to walk to my swim and then i hooked 21 Pike and managed to land 12 of them for a total weight of over 80lb and the Pike cup was mine and not 1 of the others had a run.

That was about the last time i seriously fished for pike.

Which is why i doubt i'll ever match or beat either of my best Pike efforts.

Was she in good condition? She looks in really good nick. I've caught some scabby looking pike this year. They are all beautiful, but some are more beautiful than others. One I had on Saturday was fat with spawn.

She was in very good nick,not a lot of spawn if any at all,My view is the more north you go the later they spawn all to do with temp and the weather the milder the winter then the sooner they spawn
